Their website says it is but sfi site does not say they are and also when you get it there is no stamp or sticker.... Yeah there is a lot of debate on them. They make some sweet stuff. I like it. Ii just did a search on it and found a heated debate about that (9 pages). sorry if im bringing up any bad memorys. not sfi? their web site says other wise.
yeah I so agree, awesome looking parts!Just my opinion and sort of off topic. D3 makes some cool products. I cant think of any other company offering more V specific parts. I love the "looks" of their intake system($395 on ebay)! Can I afford any other part they make, No. Do they make awesome looking(radiator, intercooler, lid spacer,differential cooler,intake) parts, yes. Again just my opinion.
Charlie at RPM motors is up in the Valencia area, about what, an hour and change closer to you? Double that in traffic o'course. Luna and many other LS-heads can vouch for him I'm sure.From what I've heard, they have a very good reputation. I have plans for some major work in the not to distant future and I am giving them some serious consideration. I just wish they or someone that knows what there doing had their business a little closer to me. I live near the central coast of Ca. and know of know one in this area. If I lived in L.A. area, no brainer. Cecil..............
Yeah, I do not believe you'd be disappointed with Charlie at RPM Motors. I've been working with him for over 6 years now (both A&A Corvette and RPM Motors) and he can work LS-motors pretty friggin good. He's got pretty much everything he needs on site. He's about, say, 10 minutes from Magic Mountain. If you are coming from central CA, it could (more like is ) about 2+ hours closer than D3. Traffic not present in the LA area is really only possible in the middle of the nightCharlie at RPM motors is up in the Valencia area, about what, an hour and change closer to you?

James:I'd say sometime this week & I should be ready to go.
Upping the ante from the perspective of more rwhp/rwtq, initially on the dyno (both hub and roller), & doing so, hopefully, with less strain on certain parts. Nothing crazy by any means, but about the max one could use for the street (which has been my goal from minute one)--hell, probably more than the max for the street, but...James:
Are you upping the ante on the dyno or on the track? I'm too chicken to race, we all know that, & besides, I'm still stone stock, but I can line you up head to head with some turbo Buicks running from about mid '10's & up, & we do have a couple of very low '10's but they might be set up for the track only. Quite a few will be down at Fontana Friday, 03-04-2011 for some 1/4 mile racing. Racing is sponsored & held by Alternative motoring but might be sold out. I think $130 to run all day. And I believe that only 80 or so cars will be signed.
Most, but not all, of the turbo Buicks that I hang with are well dressed & heeled street cars with no roll bar or cages. That's the only kool & classy way to leave a track is to be told that you can't run anymore or asked to leave. You just tell them that you are going to restrain the cAr to 11.5 or whatever and forget too. That is going to be a good track day though.Upping the ante from the perspective of more rwhp/rwtq, initially on the dyno (both hub and roller), & doing so, hopefully, with less strain on certain parts.

I'm skeptical about the track at the moment, as I'll certainly have a 10-sec car, but no cage is installed, which I've seen cause some problems at some events.
